Subject: [ggl] 'combine' : is not a member of 'boost::geometry'

I'm getting a compiler error in MS VS2008.

error C2039: 'combine' : is not a member of 'boost::geometry'
error C3861: 'combine': identifier not found

The error results from the line of code below to expand a bounding box:

boost::geometry::combine(box, (*it).getBoundingBox());

This line compiled with the tagged version 0.8. It looks like something has
changed in version 0.9.0.

Has this function been removed? Or moved somewhere else?

On a related note, the documentation pointed to by this link:

is more than a year old. Where is the latest online documentation?
